: president obama continued his charm offensive by meeting with house republicans on capitol hill but for most republicans it probably did them more charm than good. this is why they left the meeting at separate teams when just being seen with the nation's president can get a good conservative congressman primaried by not so conservative groups. including club for growth who doesn't believe are right wing enough which means not conservative enough to support paul ryan's budget. the same one that has failed to gain any support from the majority of the sane american public leading any member of the g.o.p. with the position either don't support the ryan budget and you get primaried. or support it and get clobbered over the head with it by democrats in 2014. let's bring in someone who is all too happy to watch republicans squirm, the founder and publisher of the daily kos your friend and mine, markos moulitsas good evening. >> good evening. >> john: good to have you. is there any chance to think that he has any success winning them over to the common sense approach and maybe drive a wedge between
